Nuvola apps kpdf.png Introduction

This WikiProject aims to organize and improve the quality and accuracy of information in Wikipedia articles about Cornwall and all things Cornish.

We need your help! If you have some knowledge about Cornwall or its related articles and you would like to participate, you can:

Articles needing attention

June 2016

My research on a house history project in Fowey has thrown up a different version of Arthur Quiller Couch's death from that currently in his Wikipedia article. Anyone interested in confirming it one way or the other and editing? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:41, 6 June 2016‎

June 2013

Hospital of St Lawrence, Bodmin could use some nice photographs, ideally before the building is demolished! Any photographers out there who could drive by in a hurry? ---Asteuartw (talk) 18:30, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

June 2011

  • Anglo-Cornish (provisional title): the content needs to be compared with the companion article in the Simple English Wikipedia (they were started by the same editor)

November 2010

  • Carlyon Bay more information about the Cornwall Coliseum is needed here

April 2010

  • Land's End (rated Top-importance) is tagged for cleanup, refimprove and expand (April 2010)
  • High Cross, Truro is tagged for cleanup, noref, and notability – possibly an AfD candidate (April 2010)
  • Fistral Beach 'Cleanup' and 'Inappropriate tone' tags removed after re-write but still needs inline citations and improvement (April 2010)
  • Seven Bays - unreferenced unpatrolled page about north Cornwall (needs attention, April 2010)
  • Royal charters applying to Cornwall - has a proposal for contribution to Wikisource, a review would be useful (April 2010)


  • Camelford water pollution incident Has been written but lots more needs to be added to expand the new sections
  • List of people from or associated with Cornwall - has been replaced by a version without any unreferenced entries so is now very patchy (specialised lists may be more useful: some of these have now been provided) (the contents lack balance but it is doubtful if expansion is particularly important)
  • Alison Treganning - needs expanding, contains no references. Could do with someone who knows more about her: there must be some printed literature somewhere. (Update: article deleted, can be added if proper sources are found)
  • Lanner and District Silver Band - needs more encyclopædic tone and improved referencing.
  • Geology of Lizard, Cornwall - needs expansion and referencing. I have requested this also at the Geology Wikiproject
  • Transport in Cornwall - could do with expanding by someone who knows more about it
  • Saltash Tunnel - seems fairly adequate now
  • Cornwall - failed GA
  • Cornish currency - needs attention from an experienced numismatist
  • BBC Radio Cornwall - could be expanded a bit and has a tag for possible copyright problems
  • Cornish symbols - new, may need some expanding (update: fairly comprehensive, Feb 2010)
  • Cornish folklore - almost new but still rather sketchy (update: somewhat fuller but covers a very complex area)
  • Fishing in Cornwall - history very incomplete; could do with more detail on 20th century
